Evening Series: Altar Ego

Note we will not be running in the evening of 1st of May, but will complete the series on the 8th instead

altarEgoOn Sunday evenings from 3rd April, we are running a new series – Altar Ego.

You are NOT who you think you are. In fact, you need to take your idea of your own identity, lay it down on the altar, and sacrifice it. Give it to God. Offer it up.
Why? Because you are who GOD says you are. Until you’ve sacrificed your broken concept of your identity, you won’t become who you are meant to be.

When we place our false labels and self-deception on the altar of God’s truth, we discover who we really are as his sons and daughters. Instead of an outward-driven, approval-based ego, we learn to live with an “altar” ego, God’s vision of who we are becoming.

Discover how to trade in your broken ego and unleash your altar ego to become a living sacrifice. Once we know our true identity and are growing in our Christ-like character, then we can behave accordingly, with bold behaviour, bold prayers, bold words, and bold obedience.

Well, Christmas has come and gone again, and no doubt everyone’s exhausted. We’ve loved our Christmas series, and as always our Nativity & Carol Service with hog roast was very popular and we had a great evening.

We’ll have a new morning preaching series in the new year and another set of evening meetings planned but I’ll update all of those later, for now we just want to wish you all a very happy new year and we hope to see you in 2016.
